Remember George Floyd? You probably do, but largely due to the lying propaganda from the MSM instigating Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa Marxist thugs inspiring rioting, looting and violence nationwide.
YUP! I used the wording “lying propaganda”. Essentially the American Left deified a drug addled felonious thug going so far as to call him Saint George. Does that excuse the police tactics that probably contributed to criminal Floyd’s death? A brainwashed jury definitely cared little about the contributing factors that led to death and convicted Derek Chauvin, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao.
The police tactics used on Floyd were wrong, other restraining methods should have been employed to arrest the criminal. HOWEVER, any method would have been rough. Patting a thug’s hand resisting arrest will not work and the Communist activists (BLM, Antifa & Dem-Marxists) know this! Otherwise they would not send FBI-Gestapo in SWAT-mode to arrest Patriots critical of the Biden Coup-Administration and also arresting Conservative Biblical-Minded Pro-Life protesters in SWAT-mode.
Journalist Maryam Henein has put together the actual facts of George Floyd the criminal that definitely removes the BLM/Antifa sainthood from Floyd that Americans were nearly instructed to worship nationwide. Henein is releasing a Documentary on the subject circa Thanksgiving.
Below is the Cory’s Digs post which includes a 10-minute trailer and a Corey’s Digs audio podcast on the subject.
In a False Flag operation, no one ever truly knows the extent of the orchestration, but the suspicions never die.
On May 25, 2020, the mainstream media reported to the masses that a black man in Minneapolis by the name of George Perry Floyd, 46, was killed during an arrest after a store clerk called 911, alleging Floyd had passed a counterfeit $20 bill.
George Floyd’s death was the pivotal first domino used to transition us from virus to violence, manufacture a race war, and usher in a Color Revolution. To quote Jack Posobiec, author of Antifa:Stories From Inside the Black Bloc, his death “was the spark that lit the fuse.”
The Floyd psyop was instrumental in carrying out the events that followed, in order to bring total destruction to America. The events on May 25, 2020 changed the world forever, but the complicit media withheld the full story in order to fan the flames of violence that spread like wildfire throughout the streets of America.
What really happened that day? Through a timeline of undeniable evidence, this important documentary uncovers how the media and government lied. #TheRealTimeline

If there is any accuracy to the information I’m about to share (and I suspect there is!), it is my suspicion Globalists pulling the strings in the Representative governments of the one-time Free World of the West are going to confront awakening citizens to Medical Tyranny to yet another lab-created fear to control PEOPLE. Censorship and character smears (to hide facts and truth) have already been used against people and science today proven accurate. So weigh what and who you trust. Learn that liars lie.
Sharing two cross posts on a lab-created hemorrhagic fever and fear-control. The first is Dr. Li-Meng Yan Whistleblowing on CCP. The second adds remedy science using nature.

I need your generosity. PLEASE GIVE to overcome expenses:
After doing over 350 interviews in my career, I rarely get shaken by a guest. That rare event occurred today when I interviewed Dr. Li-Meng Yan. She told me things from her various sources, many of which are in China with direct knowledge, that blew my mind. Is the CCP developing another bioweapon? The answer to that is almost certainly yes, but Dr. Yan went a step further. She explained that they are already unleashing one onto the world through the Olympic games in Beijing today.
Before I get into the details, it’s important to understand that she and her sources are highly credible. There have been concerted efforts to discredit her, but her claims as far back as early 2020 have invariably been proven accurate. The powers-that-be attempted to debunk her claims that Covid-19 was developed in a lab. They tried to disprove what she’s said all along, that Peter Daszak and Anthony Fauci had intimate knowledge of the gain-of-function research that was going on in Wuhan. They even tried to prove she was wrong about the inefficacy of the vaccines. All of her claims have been verified and she has been vindicated multiple times. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
She is a PhD virologist, medical doctor, immunologist and independent coronavirus expert. She was educated at two top medical schools in China, Southern Medical University and Central South University. She was also Post-doctoral Fellow in the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Because of her extensive professional network and scientific evidence, Dr. Yan has the distinction of being the only Chinese insider in the west with firsthand knowledge about the true nature of the virus as well as the Communist Chinese Party’s deceptive methods used to disguise their international bioweapons research.
Her revelations since January 19, 2020 have forced the CCP to change its strategy on the origin of SARS2 and saved many lives as a result.
Since escaping from Hong Kong on April 28, 2020, she has been interviewed four times by the FBI, including an FBI virologist, and each time she has been deemed credible. Dr. Yan had spent five years researching influenza vaccines when, in January, 2020, she was asked to investigate the ‘Wuhan Pneumonia’ that was sweeping that city. With that she became one of the first scientists outside the Wuhan Institute of Virology to analyze SARS-CoV-2. From her WHO H5 Reference Lab at HKU, she determined conclusively that the virus was engineered in the lab to be an unrestricted bioweapon. She also determined through her investigation that the spread of the virus in Wuhan was not the result of a “lab leak.”
Recognizing the great danger posed by the virus and the CCP plot to cover up its nefarious activities, Dr. Yan fled to the United States to reveal the truth to the world. Since coming to America, Dr. Yan has been the primary author of three research reports detailing the lab origins of SARS-CoV-2. Her other accomplishments include a patent-pending universal influenza vaccine as well as highly recommended articles on SARS-CoV-2 in Nature and The Lancet Infectious Diseases. Dr. Yan has attracted worldwide media attention, being interviewed by major news outlets in India, Spain, Japan, Italy and across Asia. Examples include: The Washington Post, FOX NEWS, NEWSMAX, The John Bachelor Show, The Daily Mail, Tucker Carlson Today, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Newsweek, New York Post and ITV in the UK. [Blog Editor: To name a few because I first watched her on Bannon’s War Room Pandemic on Newsmax before Bannon became dropped.]
The first couple of segments of our interview detailed the ways the Chinese Communist Party and other bad actors have used Covid-19 as a bioweapon. These are claims that she has detailed before, but she went into aspects of the story that were extremely compelling, including the fact that the CCP has used everyone, including her husband, to try to bring her out of hiding and take her back to China.
But it was near the middle of the interview that she blew my mind. According to Dr. Yan, CCP studied different hemorrhagic fever viruses including Lassa, Marburg, hantavirus, which all share the same drug target CD38 in the disease. Her sources show that the CCP is fully prepared to release such bioweapon viruses during the Winter Olympic. She cannot confirm what virus it is without having the viral genome.
This new disease may be a form of viral Hemorrhagic Fever that has a much higher fatality rate than Covid-19. According to Dr. Yan, cases of the disease may have been seen throughout China and just this week it popped up in the United Kingdom.
Health authorities said they have diagnosed two cases of a viral hemorrhagic fever in Britain, and possibly a third — marking the first time the illness has been seen in the country in over a decade.
Officials said the cases of Lassa fever involve members of the same family and are linked to recent travel to western Africa, where the illness is endemic. Two of the cases are conclusive and the third hasn’t been confirmed yet. Lassa fever is an acute viral hemorrhagic illness and infection usually occurs through food or household items contaminated with urine or feces from rats who are carrying the virus.
Symptoms of Lassa fever include fever and fatigue — and in more severe cases, bleeding in the mouth, trouble breathing and low blood pressure. Most people who contract Lassa fever don’t develop any symptoms and it’s fatal in only about 1% of cases. The new cases are the first in Britain since 2009.
The problem with this report is that the disease may not be standard Lassa fever, but possibly something new that was created through gain-of-function research. Dr. Yan has not confirmed this, but based on sources and evidence, Lassa is one of the bioweapons they prepared to launch attacks during or after Winter Olympics.
She noted that CCP military scientists worked with Liberia to study Ebola in 2014. They also sent six groups of scientists to Sierra Leone to study Lassa viruses, most recently in 2020. The west Africa studies by the CCP can help people understand their military-civil fusion and bioweapon program.
If she is correct, and all of her predictions have been proven accurate so far, this could mark the beginning of very troubling times in the world. Covid-19, while dangerous to the elderly with the earlier variants, seems to be rapidly fading. Governments around the world are lifting restrictions (though some, such as Canada, France, Australia, and the United States, continue to head in the other direction). It seems like the perfect time for the CCP, with the Olympics in Beijing, to spread a new bioweapon.
According to Dr. Yan, there is already a cure and the CCP is in the process of procuring as much of it as possible. It is a Johnson & Johnson drug called Darzalex (daratumumab). According to Cancer.org, the drug is currently used to treat multiple myeloma, but Dr. Yan said the CCP discovered it is effective against their new bioweapon as well.
Stay frosty, folks. The CCP has their sights set on world domination. Unleashing a dangerous disease and cornering the market on the cure may be their fast path to achieving their goals. [Blog Editor Emphasis]

[Blog Editor: To date, it appears to me that theFreedom First Network is not posting a copyright to the content on their pages. So here’s an excerpt from the ABOUT PAGE:
America is at a crossroads. We are politically, culturally, and religiously polarized as a people. Our rights are being challenged. Our liberties are being stripped. Cancel culture is rampant. And at the center of it all is a multi-pronged attack on our freedoms.
Mainstream media is siding with authoritarians as their favored Democratic Party pushes further to the left. Progressives of yesterday are practically conservative compared to what the radical left is promoting today. Conservative media does a decent job of pushing back, but infighting is prevalent and the various right-leaning media outlets are often too competitive with one another. As conservatives, our very nature of individualism means some of the strongest champions of conservative values battle each other as much as they battle the left. But progressive media, driven by their goal of collectivism, seems to work together much better.
When Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker decided to put together a venue through which patriots could work together to fight the leftist narrative, they knew there were two arenas that were under-served in media: Podcasts and videos. The written word, while always important, is driven by eyeballs and… READ THE REST]
SHOCK CLAIM: China has released another bioweapon during the Olympic games… a hemorrhagic fever virus… here’s nutritional info on what may BLOCK it in your blood
(Natural News) In a bombshell interview with JD Rucker (see below), former Hong Kong virologist and CCP whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yan — who was right all along about the gain-of-function origins of SARS-CoV-2 — has publicly alleged that the CCP and PLA are releasing a new, engineered bioweapon onto athletes and participants at the Beijing Olympic games. This deliberate release, says Dr. Yan, is timed to infect participants from dozens of countries around the world who will then unknowingly transport hemorrhagic fever to their home countries, unleashing another wave of a global pandemic.
Go to the 42:00 mark in the following video from JD Rucker, which has been hosted on both Rumble and Brighteon, to hear Dr. Yan explaining this in detail. JD Rucker is found on Substack.com.
[Blog Editor: At this point, Mike Adams posts the Brighteon VIDEO version of the above Rumble video:]
Dr. Yan has also explained this in a public tweet as follows:
According to Creative Destruction Media, “Well-placed sources have informed CDMedia that the armed forces of the Chinese Communist Party, the People’s Liberation Army, have launched another virus on its own people during the Olympics in Beijing, in order for athletes and diplomats to return home and infect the rest of the world, particularly the West.”
CDM also explains how the virus has been engineered to extend its incubation time for maximum global impact:
The virus has been altered inside a laboratory to make the incubation period longer than usual, now suspected at 3-4 weeks, in order to allow visitors to Beijing to return home with no symptoms during transit… The virus is said to be highly transmissible, and causes bleeding through multiple orifices of the body, even the skin.
A prescription drug that’s approved to treat multiple myeloma is known by China to function as an “antidote” to their engineered bioweapon
What’s fascinating here is that, according to Dr. Yan, the CCP is already aware of an antidote to their new hemorrhagic fever bioweapon, and they are actively hoarding the Johnson & Johnson drug that serves this function.
According to Dr. Yan’s sources, the drug is known as Darzalex (daratumumab), and it is very expensive and somewhat uncommon. It has nowhere near the wide availability of ivermectin.
The drug works by targeting the CD38 glycoprotein which is over-expressed in multiple myeloma patients. It is believed that the engineered hemorrhagic fever bioweapon causes a tidal wave of CD38 production in the body, interfering with immune function and causing sudden cell death (among other problems).
CD38 is type II membrane glycoprotein that plays a role in cell adhesion, migration, and signal transduction. Additionally, CD38 is an ectoenzyme involved in generation of nucleotide metabolites, such as ADP-Ribose (Lee, 2006). CD38 expression is highly upregulated on human plasma cells and especially on MM cells.
From the NIH / PubMed site, here’s a study describing how the J&J drug targets the CD38 glycoprotein and treats multiple myeloma cancer:
Daratumumab is a human monoclonal antibody that targets CD38, a cell surface protein that is overexpressed on multiple myeloma (MM) cells. Preclinical studies have shown that daratumumab induces MM cell death through several mechanisms, including complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP), and apoptosis.
The relationship between CD38 and NAD+
Although this is a simplification, there is a relationship in every human body between CD38 — the “bad” protein” — and NAD+ — the “good” molecule. NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
To put it simply, when NAD+ levels are too low, it causes an over-expression of CD38. Higher levels of CD38 lead to inflammation and cell malfunctions while also suppressing NAD+, leading to a self-reinforcing spiral into inflammation, aging, lack of cellular energy and other health problems.
I cover his article and recommendations in detail in today’s Situation Update podcast (below).
The amazing lifesaving secret of anthocyanins – which you can grow yourself
One of the key strategies Dr. Williams reveals is how to suppress CD38 production using anthocyanins, which are pigmentation molecules found in foods and herbs. When looking at fresh produce and plants, almost any plant with a dark red, dark blue or blackish-looking color is filled with anthocyanins, which are in a class of functional plant molecules known as flavonoids.
Black current, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, red cabbage, purple corn and other similar plants with strong color pigmentation are all functional, medicinal plants. As I point out in my podcast below — which really is one of the most important I’ve ever published — you can also grow your own anthocyanins using off-grid, non-electric hydroponic grow systems that use no electricity or moving parts. By simply planting red cabbage, red oak leaf lettuce, eggplant or other types of fruits or vegetables, you will benefit from Mother Nature’s manufacturing of anthocyanins, which you can eat as natural medicine (let thy food be thy medicine).
In theory — although this is not yet proven in clinical trials — a high intake of natural plant-based anthocyanins could halt the over-expression of CD38 upon exposure to a hemorrhagic fever virus or nanoparticle attack, thereby preventing death. This is a working theory, but it is a plausible theory rooted in nutritional science. Notably, there is no down side to consuming more anthocyanins, as they are widely documented to help prevent inflammation, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and many other diseases or health conditions. Therefore, there is no downside to the strategy of deliberately consuming more POC (Plants of Color) as a prophylactic (prevention) strategy against the possibility of exposure to China’s new biological weapon.
In addition to anthocyanins sourced from common foods, Dr. Williams suggests some other plant-based molecules that may be useful at suppressing CD38 levels in the body:
Taxifolin is the flavonoid antioxidant dihydroquercetin. It inhibits cancer cells, lowers inflammation, and is useful in the treatment of cardiovascular and chronic liver disease.
Apigenin is also a flavonoid antioxidant. Apigenin crosses the blood-brain barrier to lower inflammation, improve cell function, enhance brain health, and has anticancer effects.
Luteolin is another flavonoid found in plants and medicinal herbs. It lowers inflammation, has anticancer properties, and regulates estrogen metabolism.
Callistephin is the anthocyanin, a type of flavonoid that makes foods dark blue, like blueberries and wine grapes. And, pomegranates are good sources of callistephin.
Kuromanin is an anthocyanin found in mulberry leaves, chrysanthemum, hibiscus, black currants, red raspberries, lychees, and Peruvian purple corn.
As I note in my podcast below, all of these can be acquired by juicing fresh fruits and vegetables and consuming those raw, living juices. Remember that cooking anthocyanins can degrade / destroy those delicate molecules, so these must typically be consumed in their raw forms. This is one of the key advantages of a raw food lifestyle (i.e. David Wolfe, an expert in raw foods, has spent decades teaching people about these benefits, and he’s correct).
Note that anthocyanins are also present in acai berries and many different berry varieties. Related molecules known as phycocyanins are found in huge quantities in some species of microalgae such as spirulina. The Hawaii-based company known as “Cyanotech” — which supplies astaxanthin and spirulina to the dietary supplements industry — is based on the very high presence of phycocyanins in spirulina. (I toured the Cyanotech facility many years ago and saw their lab where they extracted the phycocyanins to make medical dyes used in medical imaging applications.)
The word root “cyan” refers to the bluish color. So the word “anthocyanins” is based on the idea of blue color molecules. The color indicates many things about its functional use in human health.
Anthocyanins are colored water-soluble pigments belonging to the phenolic group. The pigments are in glycosylated forms. Anthocyanins responsible for the colors, red, purple, and blue, are in fruits and vegetables. Berries, currants, grapes, and some tropical fruits have high anthocyanins content. Red to purplish blue-colored leafy vegetables, grains, roots, and tubers are the edible vegetables that contain a high level of anthocyanins. Among the anthocyanin pigments, cyanidin-3-glucoside is the major anthocyanin found in most of the plants.
Besides the use of anthocyanidins and anthocyanins as natural dyes, these colored pigments are potential pharmaceutical ingredients that give various beneficial health effects. Scientific studies, such as cell culture studies, animal models, and human clinical trials, show that anthocyanidins and anthocyanins possess antioxidative and antimicrobial activities, improve visual and neurological health, and protect against various non-communicable diseases. These studies confer the health effects of anthocyanidins and anthocyanins, which are due to their potent antioxidant properties. Different mechanisms and pathways are involved in the protective effects, including free-radical scavenging pathway, cyclooxygenase pathway, mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway, and inflammatory cytokines signaling.
Note that all these molecules are water soluble, meaning if you’re dehydrated or don’t have good cellular hydration metabolism in place, your body won’t be able to distribute these molecules to where they’re needed. Proper hydration is critical to the distribution of these functional molecules throughout your body. I recently interviewed Energized Health founders John and Chelsea Jubilee who are experts in cellular hydration and have a health coaching program that teaches people how to dramatically improve intracellular hydration. You can see that video interview at this link. (Disclaimer: Energized Health is a sponsor of Brighteon.TV)
That science article above also lists anthocyanin content in common foods, mostly fruits:
The bottom line: Prepare for a new global outbreak of hemorrhagic fever, and prepare yourself using knowledge of nutrition
If Dr. Yan is correct, our world is about to be subjected to something akin to “COVID 2.0” — but far worse if it’s an engineered hemorrhagic fever bioweapon.
Unlike the case with covid, there’s no simple, low-cost, widely-available drug that we know of which will prevent 80% of deaths (or even close to that). Ivermectin has saved countless lives in the context of covid, but ivermectin is not effective against hemorrhagic fever (at least not that we know of).
This underscores the importance of nutritional preparedness — getting your body’s terrain ready for an onslaught of aggressive, deadly nanoparticles or “virus” strains which are apparently being deployed against humanity in an escalation of the global war against the human race.
With covid, those who died the quickest were those with comorbidity factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes and respiratory conditions. When it comes to hemorrhagic fever attacks, it may turn out that those who have poor nutrition and who live on processed, nutrient-depleted foods may be the most vulnerable.

Don’t Excuse Smash & Grab Thugs – When Communists Attack a Trail of Bodies are Left
By Justin O. Smith
Sent 12/9/2021 9:33 PM
“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” ~ Genesis 3:19 King James Bible
There are more poor people in this world and even here in America than one can count, but poor or not exactly wealthy, there’s no excuse for the sort of violence and smash and grab robberies, often accompanied by armed robbers, that we have witnessed since the Ferguson riots in 2014 to the present. But excuses aplenty rest in the mouths of the country’s Fascists, Communists and nihilists ready to be spewed forth at the slightest provocation and any situation or grievance, manufactured or real, to further their ends, get some quick cash and do more destruction to the established, traditional culture and society, to end the Republic in fact.
Organized gangs and huge crowds of mostly young Blacks, getaway cars and all, could be seen trashing and looting stores across America over the Thanksgiving holiday, as they targeted pharmacies, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, Home Depot and every jewelry store they could find, often family owned businesses. Many could be seen with various weapons, like clubs and knives, and even pointing guns at people’s heads. Now that’s some “Black Friday”.
Normally I don’t like to write from a first person perspective, but watching our cities being destroyed, trashed and burned over and over again during my lifetime has sickened me more than any other thing I’ve experienced in my life, especially when these acts of arson and vandalism were perpetrated in the name of some thug who met his end by a bullet fired from the firearm of a policeman or a good citizen in a justifiable manner in defense of themselves or others.
Of late, these robberies and destruction have been occurring simply because Leftist leaders in cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis and Philadelphia and all across America have taken the phrase “soft on crime” to unimaginable, virtually indescribable heights, as simpering bleeding-heart Leftist District Attorneys have their own “catch and release” program through easy bail or no bail requirement for all. The criminals say it’s “owed” to them, “reparations” for all the supposed institutionalized White supremacy that has kept them oppressed, even after Jim Crow was eradicated and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, affirmative action and a host of other programs have spent the past five decades pouring millions of dollars each year into the communities of America’s Black and Brown people in numerous attempts to alleviate the misery and squalor of the inner city.
Nobody is keeping anyone from working today. Those who aren’t working, just don’t want to work. Why work, when they can walk right into any store and pick out what they want, whether they need it or not, and walk right back out without any consequence and absolutely no punishment? And then to go back the next day and do it all over again.
To hear some of the Democrats tell it, store owners and police should — NO, MUST — simply stand aside and allow them to steal honest folks blind and into the poor house, until the stores are finally forced to close and shut down. And in an incredibly disingenuous and false statement, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki unbelievably attributed the recent rash of smash and grab robberies to the Covid pandemic, even as corporations are begging for workers to fill approximately ten million open jobs.
[Blog Editor: Here’s the Youtube video Justin references in the above paragraph demonstrating Psaki idiocy & a couple minutes of other smash & loot news:
During my lifetime, three great friends of mine, John Taliaferro — affectionately known as “Ol’ Man Taliaferro”, Lisa White and David Mandrell have been murdered by violent criminals. John and Lisa died in separate robberies at the hands of animals with no regard for human life. In Lisa’s case, she did everything her assailant demanded, including laying down face-first, and still the young Black thug shot her point-blank in the head. And similarly, Sheriff’s Deputy Mandrell was ambushed and shot in the back of the head, while he was on his knees.
My own father grew up as poor as one will ever see in America, without anything during the Depression era. By age sixteen in 1941, just before he joined the Army and went off to war, he was cutting broomcorn for ten cents a bundle. He was lily-White and wasn’t blaming anyone else for his poverty, at the time, and he certainly wasn’t out robbing and stealing and murdering to gain more than he earned by the sweat of his own brow, performing good, hard honest work.
Did he enjoy it? The way he spoke of those days, while he didn’t exactly enjoy them, he understood that he learned much from those days. He wanted more; he earned an education throughout his 26-year military service, and upon his retirement from the Army, he earned a significantly larger salary in the public sector. His take on criminals was that there wasn’t any excuse, too, because he knew if he could pull himself from poverty, the same exact opportunities were there for them too, regardless of color.
Our country was founded largely on property rights and the freedom to build our wealth.It was also founded on the right to defend any property we may accrue over any given period of time, as well as the right to defend ourselves. We have grown accustomed to relying on the police to come to our aid as the centuries went by, even though in their absence, the law has historically allowed us to take the necessary measures to save our life and the life of others.
Now, with police forces largely politicized or forced to stand down as the looters and rioters take charge of entire city blocks, it’s more than obvious that America has been thrown to the wolves by the Democratic Party Communists, who are more than happy to oblige their supporters by turning a blind eye and allowing them to run amok in the manner seen in the movie ‘Purge‘, where anything goes for a 24-hour period. However, America is witnessing Purge-style behavior running day in and day out for entire years, and nothing is done about it, as burned-out husks of cities sit in ruin, never having fully recovered, never rebuilt, and abandoned by regular folks and corporations as an unhealthy economic and physical risk.
If I owned a business today, I would probably do what I could to help someone in real need, if they asked for my help, rather than just walking in and trying to take what is mine by threats and force. If I had a store and a young couple needed milk for their children, I’d help as long as I could without letting them to grow too dependent on my help. Or, if I had an old car that still ran decently and I didn’t really need it, because I had bought a new one, it’s very possible that I’d give someone in real need special arrangements to purchase it, or even give it away, since I have received many kindnesses myself, as a very young man just on the way up.
However, nobody owes anybody anything, and for those who believe they are owed a living, no matter their color, they’re in for a rude awakening in the not-too-distant future.
Despite being called “racially insensitive” in 1968, after the Liberty City Riots, Walter Headley, Miami’s Police Chief, absolutely one hundred percent had the right idea, when he was overheard in 1967 saying, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts“; and it doesn’t matter what color the dirty low-down bastards might be. It’s a commonsense philosophy that American society needs to revisit if order is to ever be restored in this nation.
I make no bones about it, and I don’t give a good damn who does or doesn’t like it. In the absence of anything that remotely resembles honest “law” and with the Democratic Part Communists and the Biden regime giving nihilists and criminal gangs a free pass, and blaming White America for their situation, if I’m ever put upon by and physically attacked by a mob of radicals of any color — White Antifa, Brown La Raza, or Black Lives Matter — in my home or out in public, I will leave as many bodies lying dead as I can, as I empty my Glock .40 into their sorry anti-American, godless, thuggish, inhuman hearts, reloading and repeating until they stop, I’m dead or the authorities arrive and put an end to the battle. And then I’ll dare anyone to charge me with a crime.
We’re on our own, until the nation as a whole, returns to the actual enforcement of our laws on the books, including the laws that uphold one’s right to self-defense.
Defend your property, your home, and your business. Defend your life and the lives of your family and loved ones, as the situation may demand, and let the bodies fall where they may. It’s your right and anyone who says different are the very ones who currently seek to take it all awayand destroy what you and I have built with our own two hands, through honest work by the sweat of our own brow.

Twenty-years ago seems like yesterday when it comes to the Islamic Terrorist attack of 9/11 on American. I remember the hot anger I felt after realizing the attack came due to the hatred of American Liberty and Religious Liberty. And I am saddened I have grandchildren who are clueless toward foreign and ideological attacks that take American lives. Justin Smith revived those memories.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Twenty years ago on September 11th 2001, Americans endured the worst attack against our homeland anyone had ever witnessed in our entire history, and many of us had hot tears of anger streaming down our faces, as the horror of it all evoked a wide array of emotions, from fear to sorrow to anger. And we swore we would “Never Forget”. We swore to hunt down the perpetrators of this [JOS] heinous terrorist attack against America, the Al Qaeda, and eradicate them and to proceed to ensure that nothing similar would ever occur.
All these years later, I recall watching the jet airliners crashing into the Twin Towers, in real time, on the television, questioning the moment of the first impact until I saw the second jet flying low turn toward the second tower like a heat seeking missile, and I still have the sensation of the hot tears of anger on my cheeks as the Towers fell that fateful morning as I understood I had just witnessed murder most foul. I remember the thousands of our fellow Americans, innocent people just going about their days business, trapped in the World Trade Center’s towers and waiting for a rescue that didn’t come, as scores of people leaped from the towers to their deaths to escape the inferno that followed. I recall hearing the messages saved for all posterity that were sent to loved ones in recordings and phone calls from the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 filled with love, hope and sadness, with some noting the likelihood of their death.
[Blog Editor: I found a Youtube audio of three calls from UA Flight 93 to loved ones:
3 passengers call loved ones during the highjack.]
The strongest, richest, most modern and powerful country in the world, America was vulnerable that morning precisely because of its strength, its new found love of the society killing multiculturalism and its respect for all its people and visitors. So when those Sons of Allah showed up from Saudi Arabia, the United Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon, nobody told them they couldn’t attend flight training. Nobody told those terrorists in training who followed they couldn’t enroll in our universities to study chemistry and biology and those things necessary for waging bacteriological warfare, even when they suspicioned they might try to dose our reservoirs and unleash a horrible and deadly disaster on us. Our strength was also the weakness that allowed them to attack our science and technology by hijacking jets to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, American symbols of wealth, modernity and power.
Now, twenty years later, those of us who recognized the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as an escalation of the war against America and, in fact, against Western civilization by Islam and its allies, and swore we would “Never Forget”, are angry to see so many Americans have actually forgotten or no longer care. We’re angry that after four previous U.S. presidents swore to destroy Al Qaeda, even going so far as to suggest they had destroyed Al Qaeda on several occasions, a feckless, criminally negligent, treasonous and cowardly Biden regime has allowed the Taliban and Al Qaeda to come back even stronger and better armed than before and exponentially better positioned to wreak havoc and commit more acts of terror against America and Europe than it was in 2001, a basic betrayal of everything that has gone before us and a betrayal of the memory of all the victims of the September 11th attacks.
There are no tears today, but I’m angrier than I’ve ever been over the past few week’s events and now this new development, of which all could have been prevented, if only we had competent people in our government and our military leadership, who didn’t now actually think they could cooperate with the Taliban in the future, suggested by General Milley in a recent news conference. However, all America will shed a flood of tears, if our stranded Americans die at the hands of the Taliban or Al Qaeda, due to some new miscalculation by the idiots of the Biden regime, especially so close to the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks.
It’s purely surreal that America has gone from declaring it would totally defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda, very nearly completing the job at one time, to appeasing them, emboldening them, strengthening them and even begging them for their cooperation, as the Taliban flag now flies over what was once the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan.
Imagine sitting on that tarmac in Mazar-i-Sharif in fear for your life and wondering if anyone is coming to rescue you, to save your life, not knowing if you will be taken off the plane and executed and the next hour or minute might mark your last moments of earth. Any harm or deaths of Americans at this point will fall directly on Biden and his regime, to be remembered for all time as another miserable betrayal.
We’ve arrived at this destination largely from a misshaped and erroneous understanding of Islam and the Middle East and Central Asia. Although many of the seemingly so-called “moderate” Muslims might have jealously eyed the modernization of the West, they desired to attain a modern Islamic society through Islamic led initiatives on national and global stages, and ultimately they’ve always hated the West, our freedoms and all America represents, despite any propaganda to the contrary.They hate the West still today, simply because it exists and largely due to the defeats it has handed Islam, fromMalta to Spain [Important Battle & lengthy Reconquista] to Vienna on and near September 11th over the centuries; especially the defeat by the Polish King Jan III Sobieski who claimed his victory at Vienna on September 12th 1683 a victory for Christianity and gave thanks to Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna.
There’s also the other aspect of this dynamic, in the alliance that has existed between America’s Communists and many in the Democratic Party and the adherents and numerous advocates for Islam in America, largely since the 1970s but especially with the creation of the [JOS] Muslim American Society in 1993 and several other organizations such as the [JOS] Islamic Society of North America. These traitors have attempted to raise the supremacist dogma of Islam and Marx to the same level with our Western and Christian virtues and principles, demanding they be made equal; but they never mention any other religion in the same vein of thought, not for the Buddhists, Hindus, Confucianists, Greek and Russian Orthodox or anybody else. At the same time, they rail against “the American imperialists” and “the Israel occupation” and spit on the memories of many fine men and women who fought to regain or safeguard the Freedom and Liberty they currently enjoy, during two world wars and numerous lesser conflicts just as deadly and bloody. Yes, the American Leftist bastards have become the good ally of the Islamic bastards who want to kill or enslave you and me, the normal average American patriot, in the name of their contrived, false “god” Allah.
[Blog Editor: KNOW the enemy of Freedom & Liberty – The RED (Marxist) and GREEN (Islam) AXIS:
Isn’t it sad and reprehensible to see? The American Leftists have waved their rainbow flag for the past two decades to protest every honest step any administration has ever made to keep America safe. But hypocrites that they are, the world never sees them wave their rainbow flags to condemn Islamic terrorism and those who use suicide bombs and remote controlled bombs and improvised explosive devices to kill Americans and Westerners, or the imams and mullahs who preach jihad and “holy war” against America, while smiling and hiding behind a facade of peace.
More the rule seen across Islam than the exception, George Habash, the head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stated in the 1970s that their revolution was not confined to Palestine and was a world-wide initiative. He called the entirety of Western civilization the enemy of Islam, including America, as he kept true to Islamic doctrine that call for continued jihad until everything outside of the House of Islam has been defeated and absorbed by Islam [Blog Editor: I could not locate Habash’s specific thought that Western Civ was the enemy of Islam, But follow the asterisk (*) below this paragraph showing Justin’s Habash is definitely close]; further noting in a [JOS] 1972interview (see pages 131 &132 of Force of Reason) conducted by the impeccable, world renown journalist, Oriana Fallaci, that “the entire Arab Nations must go to war against Europe and America … that from now on there will be no peace for the West.”
*[‘Habash saw no contradiction between this ideological shift and his national identity. In this regard, he considered there was a perfect harmony between “my Arab nationalism, my being Christian, my Islamic culture and my progressive Marxism … I am a Marxist, leftist by culture, the Islamic heritage is an essential part of my thought structure, Islam is the most important component of Arab nationalism, and Arab nationalism is an essential part of my being.” He considered dialectical materialism to be the essence of Marxism.’ — George Habash; Palestinian Journeys]
Although I am a Christian, I lay no particular claim to being a very good one. I especially have trouble with the precepts of turning the other cheek and forgiveness, when faced with particularly egregious and heinous violations against me or mine and all that I love.
America and every president involved in the Afghanistan Theater spent far too much time worrying about the politics of the thing, instead of going into the country and turning its landscape red with the blood of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, killing everyone in their families, everyone who they ever called “friend”, anyone who ever conducted business with them, and even their goats and sheep. Instead of showing them any mercy, we should have made damned certain they were completely and definitively defeated, in the manner of Nagasaki and Dresden, and saved the mercy and benevolence for last.
Trying to fight a war with one hand tied behind our back and as a supporting force to the Afghan national Army is exactly why we are now faced with another dismal situation as we look to soon commemorate and honor those who died on September 11th 2001, whether they were the innocent civilians caught in a freak twist of fate or the good men and women of the first responders, the policemen and firemen, who answered the call that day and tried to save as many people as they could.
September 11th draws close and on the morning of, I’ll recall that the CIA had forewarning of the attack and failed to see the urgency in making certain the FBI and our military were fully apprised and aware of the possibility that such an attack was imminent. I’ll remember the passengers of the four airliners that were transformed into bombs, and especially those little children, like the four year old little girl, [JOS] Juliana Valentine McCourt, whose tiny body was destroyed when United Airlines Flight 175 slammed into the South Tower and disintegrated. I’ll remember the heroes of Flight 93 who fought the Islamic Jihadi terrorist and prevented the airliner from being flown into the White House. I’ll remember those people working in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and all the firemen who died trying to save them, and I will light a candle and say a long prayer for them all.
I’ve never forgotten that from start to finish nearly an hour and a half had elapsed. By 10:03 A.M., nearly 3,000 innocent Americans — loved ones, friends, and neighbors — were dead.
I’ve never forgotten that a unified cry of “Allahu Akbar” was heard reverberating throughout the Islamic world that day, as Muslims laughed, rejoiced and celebrated the catastrophe, misery, pain and grief that fell upon America, in much the same manner as they celebrated the Taliban’s recent victory over the U.S.
I’ve never forgotten nor forgiven, and I never will. I understand who and what killed our people on September 11th 2001; and just as sure as I am that they will come for us again, I know history and America isn’t through with them yet.
And in the meantime, I’ll be praying for the living and our fine American souls currently held hostage in Afghanistan, in hopes that some group, any group, is able to effect their deliverance and the safe release and safe passage home for them, in a manner that seems to be beyond Biden and his useless anti-American regime, that brays one meaningless assurance after another, placing the onus on the trapped Americans and making it clear that Biden has essentially washed his hands of the entire sorry, sordid affair. I’ll pray that America won’t find another occasion in the coming days to cry hot tears, or tears of any kind, due to one more American death at the hands of Al Qaeda or the Taliban, on September 11th 2021 or any other day in the near future.

Sleepy Joe – Beijing Joe – Dementia Joe – Creepy Joe
Before faux-President Biden leaves the stolen POTUS Office, add Taliban Joe to the growing list of nicknames. Justin Smith provides excellent reasoning indicating Biden is more Taliban-friendly than caring one iota for Americans.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Americans see the pictures of the Afghan women and their little children and feel sympathy for their plight, and this is being played to the last card to persuade Americans of the need for us all to accept a massive invasion of largely unvetted Afghan refugees and an unacceptable national security risk. Very few actually qualify for Special Immigration Visas, and many more are either criminals such as Ghader Heydari, a convicted rapist previously deported from America, or actual terrorists who killed our own soldiers and “refugees” on the terror watch list, like the one detected at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar; and, as such, America’s good people mustn’t allow Taliban Joe, a dishonest, lying, elitist anti-American to use his military failure in Afghanistan [JOS] as an excuse to bring thousands of more people into America, who hold views largely antithetical to America’s virtues and principles, to advance his and the Democratic Party’s agenda to further dismantle America, when they can and should be just as easily resettled in some other Islamic country of their own choosing.
The Afghan people are comprised of numerous tribes, such as the Pashtun, Kyrgyz, Arab, Turkmen, Baloch, Tajik, Uzbek and others, Sunni and Shiite Muslims, that were loosely held under control through most of the 20th century under a monarchy, until approximately 1963 when a Maoist movement rolled across the country and caused a great deal more unrest. But they have warred among themselves for centuries, as well as against all outsiders, and the war Biden says he ended will go on for many long decades yet, perhaps centuries, with the exception that America will remain its primary target. So let Afghan wishing to escape bide their time during a complete security screening somewhere else, like Tajikistan or Pakistan, anywhere else other than a U.S. military base or some city in fly-over America.
During the September 1st news conference, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the U.S. military had evacuated a total of six thousand Americans. That would suggest there could be as many as five thousand Americans still left stranded as real live Taliban hostages, when one recalls the lowest figure given at the beginning of evacuation operations was eleven thousand Americans were there In Country, with a high confidence that as many as 40,000 total were spread across Afghanistan. Austin also noted that 120,000 Afghan nationals were evacuated, which reveals that 95 percent of the evacuees were not Americans.
The question all American patriots must be screaming over the phone to their Congressmen and anybody else in high office they can reach is: “Why wasn’t the greatest, most intense effort expended towards getting our fellow Americans out of Afghanistan, rather than focusing so much on the Afghanis?”
At best, it was an extremely difficult, very nearly impossible, task for U.S. soldiers to attempt to properly and fully vet all the Afghan evacuees who claimed to have fought with or served U.S. Armed Forces and government agencies, while they were so besieged under such dire and dangerous circumstances, and if it is going to happen at all, it must now occur in whichever Middle Eastern countries are willing to hold them, before they are allowed to continue to the United States. But, this job has become pretty much impossible now that we no longer have any personnel in the region, since we certainly can’t rely on the Taliban to tell us the truth about any Ahmed the Terrorist and say, “Oh no … don’t let him through.”
“Mr. President, we are facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least ten to fifteen thousand international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis thrown into this, so that dimension needs to be taken account of. … (noting later) … There are agreements with the Taliban that we [or ‘you’ (which wasn’t made) clear] are not previously aware of, and because of your air force was extremely cautious in attacking (the Taliban) them.”
Even though we hear the Mainstream Media breathlessly tell us time and again how well all the evacuees have been vetted, with thousands evacuated willy-nilly and in a panicked accelerated manner for most of the evacuees there isn’t any real way to tell exactly who they are. Some of them could well be some of the international terrorists Ghani spoke of on July 23rd. And as we saw too often over the twenty years In Country, vetting isn’t foolproof; vetting is only as good as the initial information one has to start the process, and too many of these so-called “refugees” offer next to nothing from the start regarding personal background information, making the vetting process as it now stands trying to ignore the usual two year fourteen steps program largely irrelevant.
However, the U.S. federal government absolutely should honor any documented, verifiable and well proven agreement to bring any Afghan who served honorably, side by side, with our soldiers and faced the same Taliban and Al Qaeda bullets, as soldiers or interpreters and never had the nature of their trustworthiness called into question over a period of years or timeframe named in any agreement. This shouldn’t mean that any Afghan who worked a few weeks or a few months as an office worker for some commander or in the U.S. Embassy gets an automatic pass, especially when we have seen numerous cases over the years where “interpreters” [JOS] actually were later found to be Taliban agents, usually after they killed some U.S. soldiers with surprise ambushes and automatic rifle fire and bombings, [JOS]similar to those 257 insider attacks in 2019 that killed 172 U.S. soldiers.
In his usual incredible manner, Biden’s people have created a new program to circumvent Congress and existing immigration and refugees laws, exhibiting that there may also be more at stake than a simple rescue of Afghanis in actual real need of rescuing. On [JOS]August 2nd, the State Department announced “a Prior 2 (P-2) designation granting U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) access for certain Afghan nationals and their eligible family members,” essentially removing the criteria of one demonstrating a true fear of persecution. Any Afghan who was remotely connected to the U.S. government is now eligible to come to America, through this unwarranted expansion of the refugee program and the negation of real need.
This is what Democrats have done from the turn of the 20th century when they assaulted America’s immigration law and ended the process at Ellis Island that was designed to keep out undesirables such as criminals and radicals with ideas so antithetical to our Founding Principles as to be deemed unacceptable, like Communists, anarchists, and yes, practitioners of Islam, an ideology that demands to reign supreme above all others. That they continuously advocate for more Muslims, now [JOS]Afghans of which ninety-nine percent wanted to live under Sharia Law according to 2011 and 2013 PEW polls, exhibits more of the same subversion of America, since they know that most of these people will lie, swear their allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and America and still never fully assimilate, as they ride the immigration benefits afforded them.
America shouldn’t expect anything less from its enemy from within, Taliban Joe and his Democratic Party Communists who have never seen a U.S. enemy they didn’t want to hug or an immigration ceiling they didn’t want to break if the new “immigrants” were as anti-American as them and seen as potential future Democratic Party voters. This need to subvert U.S. sovereignty in the name of Marx is found at the core of their little black hearts, so what’s a few hundred thousand more Afghan immigrants to them, in the grand scheme of things, when they’ve already shredded our borders and immigration law these past few months, by bringing in 800,000 illegal aliens along with some 750,000 legal immigrants, in their desire to change the political environment for years to come with thousands more like Ilhan Omar and to finally one day implement a totally authoritarian Socialist regime, end the Republic and complete their fundamental transformation of America.
Say “Good-bye” to any Constitutional mandate for U.S. “presidents” to protect and defend America. Taliban Joe seems determined to do just the opposite, as he declares “Mission Accomplished”.
“During the past decades, the U.S. has witnessed Islamic inspired terror plots, designed to kill hundreds and thousands, foiled by the Grace of God, luck and good investigative work and intelligence information. Najibullah Zazi hoped to detonate a triacetone triperoxide-based explosive in the New York subway close to September 11, 2009; in April 2013, Ahmed Abassi, a chemical engineering graduate student at Laval University in Quebec, planned to murder upwards of 100,000 people, by contaminating the water supply of a major U.S. city. ….. Border agents are finding items like ‘In Memory of Our Martyrs’, a book documenting suicide-bombings, which was found near Casa Grande, AZ in January 2012. And, two months later, Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen released a report quoting Abdullah al-Nafsi, a Muslim cleric, saying, “… one man with the courage to carry a suitcase of anthrax through the tunnels from Mexico to the United States could kill 330,000 Americans in one hour.”
Reviews the photos and videos of the C-17 transports and commercial charters leaving out of Kabul Airport during most of last week, and one sees that very few women and children found their way on board. And for all practical intent and purposes, once the doors of those planes closed on the tarmac in Kabul, no matter the potential security threat from anyone aboard, they all basically became permanent U.S. residents, despite all assurances to the contrary, just you wait and see.
America will most certainly witness a renewal of Islamic inspired terror attacks on America’s soil in the coming months, because Taliban Joe doesn’t give a damn about Americans or America.
However badly one may feel for the unfortunate and truly innocent Afghans, like the little children flashed across our television screens, as Americans we all should be much more concerned over those Americans that Taliban Joe so callously and nonchalantly left behind to serve as hostages for the Taliban, as he also abandons any semblance of a pro-America immigration policy. No one should really give a good damn if not even one more Afghan of the highest character and trustworthy nature isn’t brought to America as long as just one American is left in Afghanistan against his wishes, because of Taliban Joe’s demented need for a photo opportunity on September 11th 2021 as the man who ended the Afghan War, and damn the cost to America in the years to come.
Tell Joe to bring our people home.
The war keeps coming home.

Paul Sutliff sent two Youtube links relating to an in interview on Sophie’s Choice conducted by Karina Schmidt (spelled by listening phonetically – unsure of correct spelling) about Pauls most recent book “The Cancer of Civilization Jihad” and the other about Beijing Biden’s Afghanistan debacle.
I am reversing the order of the email because Paul’s Afghanistan thoughts is a little over a 4-minute video and the Sophie’s Voice interview is detailed and a little over one-hour.
Misinformation abounds claiming that this fiasco was not planned. Why are media professionals not asking about the plan that removed citizens first being removed two months ahead? This was done to force America to accept 100,000 plus Muslims into America.]
For two weeks I have been talking about this on The Sutliffian Report.
Even though post from Justin Smith is late on details, these details on the FAKE-Administration management of the U.S. Military departure from Afghanistan is a blood-stain on Stolen-Election Biden will NEVER be washed away. Justin points to a new nickname to add to an already long list of pejorative descriptors – TALIBAN BIDEN.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
The American Flag is flying at half-staff in the aftermath of two bombs being detonated in Kabul on Thursday, August 26th 2021, around 8:30 AM CST our time, one at the airport and one at the nearby Baron Hotel, and all Taliban Joe can do is continue denying any real responsibility for what has unfolded, since he ordered U.S. troops to close down Bagram Air Base and seven other installations in the first week of July. Everything from that point on facilitated an increase of terrorist attacks around the country and the fall of the Afghan government, emboldened the Taliban, and resulted in the “A Team” of terrorists being assembled and placed in the Afghan seat of government and a predictably dangerous situation and a worst case scenario for the evacuation of American citizens and the terrorist attacks that left thirteen U.S. Marines dead and eighteen wounded, along with scores of Afghan casualties.
This is the worst U.S. policy failure in all American history.
Joe Biden owns this bloody, deadly attack on our U.S. Marines, since his evacuation of Bagram Air Base and the retreat of our forces allowed the Taliban to release some of the worst Al Qaeda and Isis terrorists known to the free world and put them back on the battlefield. He owns this because he has allowed the Taliban to dictate to him the terms of America’s retreat, essentially America’s surrender, as well as following such an incredibly weak security plan for the Kabul Airport that it boggles the mind.
Biden actually left the U.S. evacuations operations and process reliant upon the Taliban for help in assuring the security of Hamid Karzai International Airport, which is putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Whether one speaks of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS Khorasan or the Haqqani, they are all one in the same and interchangeable in their hatred for America and their desire to kill Americans, and one can rest assured that the Taliban allowed this bomber to creep through the perimeter unnoticed until he got to his target and unleashed hell and death all about him.
Does anyone really believe the Taliban were sincere in their condemnation of this terrorist attack? They are ecstatic and jumping for joy on the inside, no matter how well they disguise their outward facial appearances in somber concern for the dead and wounded, as they continue to demand all U.S. forces must be out of Afghanistan, with or without our fellow countrymen.
As reprehensible and disgusting as it is to note, the Biden administration had warning of impending ISIS Khorasan attacks on Hamid Karzai International Airport for several days, which made specific note of a bomb being carried or placed outside the airport gates, so it’s hard to understand why more wasn’t done to tighten security and even to step out and neutralize these terrorists, to kill them with extreme prejudice.
Please note that the Biden Administration had even released an official warning the very day before the explosive devices unleashed their destruction and the horrific deaths that followed. The Level 4 Travel Advisory from “The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan” [operating from the airport now] read in part:
“Because of security threats outside the gates of Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so.”
We haven’t had anyone killed in Afghanistan since February of 2020, and now, after Biden’s hasty retreat and policy of appeasement, America has suffered the worst loss since the Extortion 17 tragedy [Blog Editor: Mostly Left-Wing fact checkers will tell Dementia-Joe had nothing to do the Extortion 17 travesty, but it has been my discovery these fact checkers blatantly to protect Leftist interests and agendas – especially Dementia-Joe. I suspect there is no smoking gun Dementia-Joe leaked SEAL names due to Leftist efficiency in covering their tracks, suspicions persist: Noisy Room article from 8/7/2020] on August 6th 2011, when we lost 30 Americans — Special Warfare Operators/ Seal Team Six — to the terrorists in Wardak Province. And we more than likely would have stopped this attack on Kabul, if our Afghan allies and eyes on the ground, local intelligence operatives, weren’t having to deal with thousands of newly released Al Qaeda and ISIS, fighting as they also run for their lives.
Looking tired and defeated, Biden insisted his decisions to this point were correct and necessary, but nothing could be more false. This is the man who has overturned every single Trump policy that he possibly could, whether we speak of the Keystone Pipeline or the border and our nation’s overall security. Nothing prevented him — the “President” and Commander-In-Chief — from demanding a feasible, effective evacuation plan from his Top Military Brass and telling the Taliban we would withdraw our military after we had seen all our American citizens safely home.
He didn’t have to stick to any timetable that leaves Americans behind, as he now insists on doing. With incredible gall and temerity, he stood before the cameras today and mumbled about continuing to try to get any and all Americans out, “who want to leave”, AFTER U.S. troops completely withdraw by August 31st, essentially signing many of these Americans’ death sentences and ensuring that those who aren’t murdered right away will become the Taliban’s hostages, to be done with as they wish and used as leverage against the Biden administration for God only knows what.
But every day, each time he takes to the podium, it’s as if he is unsure of whether or not he is actually in charge of anything, much less the most powerful office in the entire world, and this was made painfully obvious as he suggested he “was instructed to call on” certain reporters for the question and answer segment that followed his national address. He is heading at the head of the United States of America, still the most powerful nation on earth; but, all that power means absolutely nothing, if it’s not properly put to use.
It’s important to tell America that Afghanistan fell because Taliban Joe made sure it had to fall. He undermined the Afghan government at every step, violating President Trump’s original withdrawal agreement by excluding Ashraf Ghani’s government from talks the Biden administration had with the Taliban. He pulled much needed funds to maintain air support from the Afghan Security Forces, which gave them their edge over the Taliban in July, and when he pulled most of the U.S. military out too and closed down Bagram, our Afghan forces saw the writing on the wall.
Many operatives who kept our own intelligence agencies appraised of the situation on the ground in various parts of the country went dark, as they had to find new ways to hide, run and fight, yes fight. Many Afghanis are still fighting in Afghanistan despite what Joe has asserted, especially in Northern Afghanistan.
The environment in Afghanistan had been largely stabilized and the Taliban couldn’t have mounted so successful a campaign and seized so many provinces so rapidly, if not for actions by Joe Biden. It was almost as though he was their ally much more than an ally to President Ashraf Ghani and the Afghan National Army. And such as it was, we would have been significantly better served by keeping a military presence there to fill the power vacuum in Afghanistan and retain leverage over China and Russia in the region and our own influence in the Near East Theater, for a litany of reasons that do, in fact, serve America’s vital national security interests, in light of both China’s and Russia’s most recent aggressions against America.
On August 26th, Biden swore he would hunt down those behind the bombings and extract vengeance for America, but he didn’t go into any details on how he proposed to do so. However, it’s a certainty that he won’t be able to do so without boots on the ground or, at the very least, the Afghan intelligence network that had been nurtured by our soldiers through the years.
Rather than continue down this path of folly and continued defeat, Biden, or whoever is pulling his strings, must reverse course and tell the Taliban we will leave in our own good time and not until every last American has been evacuated safely; and then Biden must reinsert whatever number of soldiers necessary to successfully complete this mission, with orders to enter the streets of Kabul and kill anybody carrying a rifle, who isn’t an ally or an American trying to leave Afghanistan.
Exhibiting some of the most dishonorable actions seen from any Commander-In-Chief in many long years, Joe Biden is essentially handicapping our U.S. Armed Forces right out of the starting gate, but all need not be lost. Except it is going to be for the lack of any real leaders in his administration and the lack of a capable president.
Biden’s stubborn belief that he is right above all the military strategists who say he is more than just wrong has already enabled the growth of a stronger and more capable Terrorist Association led by former Gitmo prisoner, Khairullah Khairkhwa [released in 2014 by Obama], armed with U.S. weapons, and an Al Qaeda that’s much stronger than when we first invaded Afghanistan, and his callous indifference to the lives of our Afghan allies and American lives has set the stage for thousands of Americans to be left behind to be held hostage or murdered. And, his numerous lies, told with an air of self-righteousness, has set the stage for another attack similar to 9/11 in the not too distant future, as he attempts to wash his hands of Afghanistan, with the blood and sacrifice of American soldiers and citizens alike.
However, despite all Biden’s disingenuous talk of getting America out of “a forever war”, no one should believe that leaving Afghanistan will end Islam’s and the new, improved Terror Association’s war against America. He’s just surrendered to the Taliban and ensured that Afghanistan will once again become a way station for terrorists and Islamic jihadis who want to bring harm to America.
Aside from all this, there isn’t a detergent or solvent strong enough to remove the blood of our good and decent young Marines from Biden’s hands. His hands will remain stained with their blood ’til his own dying day.

Let’s hope and pray that the last words our fellow Americans hear aren’t “Allahu Akbar” as they try to escape Afghanistan.
America is witnessing a known eleven thousand, possibly as many as forty thousand of their fellow Americans now trapped in Afghanistan, by the Taliban terrorists and Al Qaeda enemies of America, while Joe Biden continues to misrepresent the facts on the ground and deflect from the massive mistakes he and his people have made in the months and weeks leading up to this unbelievable policy disaster. Biden is lying to America and he has placed American lives at the mercy of the Taliban, by placing a misguided and even delusional faith in “their word” that they will allow Americans safe-passage to the airport; and he seems to be fine with leaving Americans behind to face a possible hostage situation, like we witnessed when the Revolutionary Guard held fifty-two Americans hostage for 444 days.
Every other NATO ally in the country is out in the Afghan countryside searching for their stranded countrymen and escorting them back to evacuation points, and yet incredulously, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently stated that the United States military currently doesn’t have the capability to go out into the countryside to ensure our people safe-passage to the Kabul airport. But today, August 20th, Joe Biden essentially suggested he would do so at such a time as it appears that Americans cannot make it to the airport safely on their own.

[Blog Editor] C-SPAN VIDEO: Defense Department Briefing on Taliban Takeover of Afghanistan
This would almost be humorous to watch, if it wasn’t such a deadly serious matter for so many thousands of Americans, and Afghans too, especially in light of the manner our military has so firmly controlled Afghanistan up ’til now. As Austin delivered that one unbelievable point, General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff looked as if his wife had just shot his favorite coonhound.
The UK has sent soldiers into the countryside to help their people, and Germany has sent out helicopters, as has France. And yet the United States has not done anything remotely similar, with our military content to run airport security for now, as our top echelon commanders seem so risk adverse that they are fully paralyzed; they are not willing to risk American lives, our soldiers’ lives, to save thousands of other Americans lives.
Logical-minded, rational military men understand that risk comes with the job. And if they don’t, they should stay home with their CRT and transgender study groups, lounging about in their pink tu-tus and sipping their lattes.
What in the hell is the point of even having a military, if they aren’t going to defend and protect Americans abroad as well as at home? Oh .. but wait … our military is now more focused on fighting against Conservatives and Christians in America than it is in fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
Since August 18th and reiterated in his press conference today, August 20th, Biden has kept assuring everyone that he is committed to keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan until every American is evacuated, even if it means staying past August 31st, but the chaos and lack of any pre-existing contingency plans in light of how this has unfolded doesn’t instill confidence in anyone watching, and neither does the [JOS] Biden regime’s demand of two thousand dollars reimbursement from evacuees.
Asserted recently on Fox and Friends (August 17th), former Assistant Secretary of State Robert Charles [JOS]stated:
“I am told the F-77 (U.S. State Department document) of Afghanistan indicates there are 15,000 potentially, upwards of 40,000 Americans scattered around Afghanistan right now. The Taliban has given a two week grace period for them to get out but most of them have been told to shelter in place by the State Department.”
Aug. 17, 2021 – 8:15 – Robert Charles, former assistant secretary of state for President George W. Bush, on the president’s press conference following the Taliban takeover.]
On Wednesday August 18th, the U.S. State Department issued a Security Alert that in part stated the [JOS] following:
“U.S. government-provided flights are departing. U.S. citizens, LPRs, and their spouses and unmarried children (under age 21) should consider travelling to Hamid Karzai International Airport. You should plan to enter the airport at Camp Sullivan. From the HKIA Airport South Traffic Circle, head east for 1km and turn right on to Camp Sullivan. Please note that gates may change frequently and that we will provide updates as necessary.
THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CANNOT ENSURE SAFE PASSAGE TO THE HAMID KARZAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.” [Bold & Italic text from website quoted]
Anybody with a television set has seen how hard it is to even get to the airport, much less enter it, now that the Taliban and Al Qaeda have placed their own people all around its perimeter, and they are harassing and preventing nearly everybody from entering at this very moment. Al Qaeda has been spreading across at least fifteen provinces since last month according to U.S. State Department documents, and this makes it especially dangerous for any U.S. citizen to attempt to navigate their way to any point of extrication from the country, since numerous Taliban and Al Qaeda checkpoints have sprung up along every major highway across the country.
And still Biden, an existential threat to America all by himself, had the hubris to appear on national television on August 20th and tell the nation that Al Qaeda had been destroyed in Afghanistan.
Despite any assurances from the Taliban leaders and Joe Biden’s assurances his people are in constant contact with them and safe passage is guaranteed, the evidence on the ground reveals the exact opposite at this time.
Reported just earlier today by Politico, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin acknowledged in a telephone conference that Americans were being [JOS] harmed:
“We’re also aware that some people, including Americans, have been harassed and even beaten by the Taliban. This is unacceptable and (we) made it clear to the designated Taliban leader.”
As of this writing, there aren’t any reports of U.S. citizens being killed by the Taliban or Al Qaeda, but it’s early yet in this evacuation process. In the meantime, there are an untold number of Afghans that are seen scattered along the roadsides in numerous reports, raped, tortured and murdered. The Taliban hasn’t changed at all.
How does one get to Kabul airport safely without military aid? Essentially as best they can and on a wing and a prayer, one may suppose. Asking a U.S. citizen to attempt to gain entrance on their own is pure gross incompetence and malfeasance on the part of the Biden regime, when the Taliban is firing rifles into the air and into crowds of people, too, and it is an extremely daunting thing for anyone to attempt at the moment.
This should have all Americans angry as a Momma Grizzly, especially in light of an internal memo from the U.S State Department that was warning Biden last month of just such a coming collapse, as Vivian Salama (Wall Street Journal) [JOS]reported on August 19th:
“The classified cable represents the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the Taliban’s advance was imminent, and Afghanistan’s military may be unable to stop it.[Emphasis Justin’s]
The cable, sent via the State Department’s confidential dissent channel, warned of rapid territorial gains by the Taliban and the subsequent collapse of Afghan security forces, and offered recommendations on ways to mitigate the crisis and speed up an evacuation, the two people said.”
The State Department dissent channel cable urged an accelerated timetable for the evacuation of Americans and those qualified and verified Afghan nationals, who had helped U.S. forces. It recommended starting evacuations no later than August 1rst.
Some hard questions need to be asked and answered immediately concerning Afghans being placed before Americans. Why? Why Is this being done, and who actually thought this was a good idea?
It never should have become this dire a situation, and it wouldn’t have if Biden had ordered massive airstrikes and ground attacks against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, just as soon as they started taking over any province. The environment would not be so dangerous to Americans in country now, if Biden had not evacuated nearly all the U.S. military ahead of American citizens and closed down Bagram Air Base, a working airport under U.S. control until recently.
Regardless of Biden’s timetable for leaving Afghanistan, his people should have planned to leave enough military in place to properly oversee an orderly evacuation of all Americans, without placing themselves and America in the position of actually having to negotiate with the Taliban to get our people out.
America shouldn’t be negotiating with the Taliban to get our people out. Although Biden has rushed thousands of fresh troops to Afghanistan to improve the security situation, Biden must reinsert enough military to create safe corridors across the country to allow Americans to travel safely to Kabul or any new points of evacuation that may be created in the coming days, regardless of what the Taliban wants, but he has been so clueless and disengaged from the beginning that it’s hard to know what he or his people will actually do. They seem to be crossing their fingers and hoping for the best, as they keep America on a path towards certain catastrophe, and desperate Afghan mothers are tossing their children over walls to our soldiers.
And if we can see the potential for these thousands of Americans to be held hostage, one can bet their last bottom dollar that the potential hasn’t been lost to the Taliban leaders.
Horrible as it may be to have to consider, America shouldn’t be surprised when the fight gets too tough for Biden and his risk adverse Military Brass and they move to simply get out of Afghanistan whether every U.S. citizen has been evacuated or not, since Biden’s current policy is Obama 3.0, full of excuses and blame for everybody else — FAILURE — and appeasement and kissing the ass of America’s enemies. It’s a scenario that has crossed the minds of many Americans, in light of recent events and comments.
Americans certainly wouldn’t have heard George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or General George Patton, General Eisenhower, General Schwarzkopf, General McArthur, President Truman or any other American military or civilian leader worth their salt suggesting that America didn’t have the capability to do something, to get the job done come hell or high water, even though the mission may have seemed near impossible at the time. They reasoned, arrived at solutions, persevered and overcame all obstacles thrown in their way.
Americans from all walks of life, especially those in power in the federal government and Congress, must hold the Biden regime’s and the U.S. Military’s feet to the fire to get our people out, down to the very last man and woman and child, and shout to the heavens that we will not accept the current defeatism emanating from the Biden regime and its military commanders. No matter how hard the mission may seem or how far our forces are stretched, our country must hold firm to its ethos that holds the idea of leaving no man behind, not to even think of the possibility of leaving anyone so long as one has the weapons and knowledge to prevent it, with the very lives of thousands of Americans at stake and those spoken and unspoken promises from our nation to protect them.
Biden must be pressured by the American people, the House of Representatives, the Senate and whichever media outlets are so disposed to move Heaven and Earth to bring our fellow American countrymen back home. And if so much as a hair on their head is harmed, America should paint the streets red with Taliban and Al Qaeda blood as we exit wreaking vengeance with such explosive force the sound message is heard around the world.

We should have left Afghanistan to its own Islamic self-destructive devices long ago. Islam demands complete devotion to a supremacist theopolitical ideology that specifically denigrates Jesus as the Resurrected Son of God and encodes Jew-hatred in ALL its revered writings. I suspect Beijing Biden’s dementia will not recall on how his coup-Administration has ordered a debacle of a withdrawal rather than an orderly withdrawal that gives a Terminator, “I’ll be back!” warning. At any rate, here’s a Justin Smith analysis on the idiocy of how Biden leaves Afghanistan.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Rome burned and Nero fiddled. Kabul falls and Joe Biden is out to lunch and having big fun at Camp David watching it unfold on television screens, while vacationing, and not once has he seen fit to address the American public on the [JOS] most incredible and massive policy failure in U.S. history, that surpasses Carter’s failed attempt to rescue the Embassy hostages from the Iranian Guard in 1979 and Obama’s assertion that ISIS was “the JV League” of Islamists, bringing back shades of Benghazi and the destruction of Libya in its wake, especially in light of the known escalations and increasing power of the Taliban that preceded this lightning quick conquest of the country’s provinces and major cities.
Imagine the shock felt by thousands of U.S. Armed Forces Veterans as they heard the breaking news that came across the airwaves around 12:26 PM on Sunday August 15th 2021 that the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan was being evacuated — as smoke rose from the burning top secret files — and [JOS] the U.S. flag had been lowered and removed, while panicked Embassy personnel were being flown to the nearby Hamid Karzai International Airport, now closed to all commercial flights, as the situation worsens by the second. Veterans who occupied most of the land now occupied by the Taliban are extremely troubled to see the country fall apart as the U.S. withdraws, since it evokes complicated, mind-numbing thoughts and feelings on just what did they and so many others sacrifice so much for in this war, drawing stark comparisons between Saigon in 1975 and Kabul today.
“In contrast to the numerous Trump policies he reversed, he opted to carry out Mr. Trump’s deal with the Taliban instead of trying to renegotiate it. In so doing, he overruled his top military commanders:
Gen. Frank McKenzie, the commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East; Gen. Austin Scott Miller, who led NATO forces in Afghanistan; and Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Citing the risks of removing American forces to Afghan security and the U.S. Embassy, they recommend that the U.S. keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan while stepping up diplomacy to try to cement a peace agreement.”
President Trump wanted to remove our troops by May, much sooner than Biden, but with supposed safeguards for the Afghan people previously agreed to by the Taliban. Trump’s naivety in this regard would have fared no better, since the Taliban never intended on honoring the agreement from the beginning; they used the new found relief from the Trump agreement to strengthen their position in preparation for just this moment. Biden’s weakness and inability to alter course on this matter and break with Trump’s withdrawal plan speaks to his own hypocrisy.
Biden does make a bit of sense as he suggested that added time was just more waste of American lives and resources – if the Afghan military still couldn’t or wouldn’t defend its own country after twenty years of U.S. training and being armed with the latest weapons. However, while nobody wants America to stay in Afghanistan forever, Biden’s logic ends there, since it is nothing but incompetence and sheer idiocy that would have any force announce their departure far in advance and then proceed to withdraw during the height of the enemies fighting season and at a time they have reinforced their own ranks and armaments.
Even more troubling, relief and final evacuation for U.S. Citizens is being directed along some of the most ineffective paths imaginable, as the Biden administration has thrown unnecessary obstacles and delays in the way of Americans seeking to leave the country swiftly. Incredibly, the security alert from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul directed Americans to shelter in place and register through a repatriation form if they wanted assistance to leave Afghanistan, as if they don’t already know who in the hell is working there for U.S. contractors and NGOs. They also cautioned against trying to make one’s way to Hamid Karzai International Airport. And taken together on the whole, this sounds more like a certain death sentence than any sort of rational plan that will get our people out of there, with more shades of Benghazi and what America witnessed at the Mission and the CIA Annex on September 11th 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
With Biden’s people running this Clusterf**k no one should place too much confidence in being rescued soon, and they shouldn’t just sit there waiting to be taken by the Taliban or recently freed Al Qaeda prisoners. Everybody should be heading for a known point of evacuation, no matter what, rather than waiting in a room somewhere in hopes that help arrives, and one can only imagine that those stuck in this jam are already thinking the same thing, as events on the ground continue to take a turn for the worse.
Shelter in place? That sounds exactly like “Fend for Yourself” to me. No, people with any sense will be getting the hell out of there as quick as they can, by any means they can find.
And in story after story, the Afghan people themselves are stunned by the speed at which the Taliban was able to sweep across Afghanistan taking 21 provinces and 24 capitols within a matter of days, but one young woman told Al Jazeera News this occurred largely due to a lack of any resistance from the government forces. She is [JOS] quoted in Economic Times echoing the sentiment of her countrymen:
“They literally sold us out. There was no government resistance. I never imagined that Kandahar would be taken so easily.”
Never a fan of staying in Afghanistan after we killed Bin Laden in 2011 on the never-ending somewhat opaque and ambiguous mission of exporting Western style “democracy” and nation building in traditionally Islamic nations that neither respected or desired such from us, and short of a clearly stated mission statement or real purpose serving a truly vital U.S. interest, I had stated for many long years that we should extricate ourselves from the situation, just as quickly as possible, without abandoning the Afghans who helped us, before they had time to properly prepare for our departure. But without a mission of purpose and no recent leaders trustworthy enough and worth following to one’s death in “the service of America”, I wanted to see us leave Afghanistan, before we saw one more poor unfortunate young woman or man sent home maimed and minus one or more limbs or in a body-bag.
Most Americans have long lost the will to fight any longer in Afghanistan, after nearly twenty years of war, tens of thousands injured and maimed, and 2,312 Americans who died fighting it. They now see it as a “forever war”, and they know not what it is they do not know, about the Big Picture that the U.S. Department of Defense and the Pentagon has always seen and the long term plan since 1973, to eventually have a forward position established in Afghanistan to somewhat leverage and constrain both China and Russia from the vantage point of their vulnerable southern border.
America lost sight of this mission and purpose and got placed behind the 8 Ball by subsequent Marxist administrations, during the Obama years when the so-called “rules of engagement” were untenable and a damned deadly joke for our members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and we hurt ourselves by focusing on nation building and winning the hearts and minds of an Islamic tribal people who were never going to love us, rather than fighting to win.
No, America shouldn’t be fighting “forever wars”, but Afghanistan would never have become one, if our country’s leaders had entered it with the same attitude that witnessed America nuke Nagasaki and Hiroshima and fire-bomb Dresden. Our soldiers could have and should have made quick work of the Taliban, even if it meant killing them down to the last man, and in turn, maybe someone would have soon had the epiphany that we had just created a breast-work barrier of sorts in the region that would keep China’s eastern border and Russia’s southern border exposed and vulnerable to any defensive measure America might need utilize in the future — something we will be soon wishing we had in light of China’s current saber-rattling against America and its continued aggressions and belligerence in all parts of the world.
There has been little to zero discussion of the strategic importance of our bases in Afghanistan, although even many enlisted cadre full well get it. Russia is north — approximately four hours away by jet, China lies to the east, Pakistan to the South and Iran to the West. Without any presence there, U.S. interests in Central Asia are pretty well strangled, and Biden’s regime will soon miss the added leverage this provided our country with our enemies.
But, this was never the stated mission, and now it is all but a mute topic and something that will be thrown in the ashcan by this feckless, dangerously incompetent regime and Joe Biden, who has yet to be right on anything that pertains to U.S. foreign policy.
And so it is only natural that everybody is asking “What was it all for”, as we see Biden’s do-nothing, know-nothing appeasement policy and his grandstanding gesture aimed at officially being done in Afghanistan, on the anniversary of the worst attack on America in U.S. history on September 11th 2001, turning into a massive failure of epic proportions.
As reported by Kipp Jones on August 14th, Jeong Jangsoo, a retired Colonel of the South Korean Army and a Veteran of the Coalition Force in Afghanistan, who commanded 300 soldiers in 2007 in the fight against the Taliban, expressed his thoughts in telling fashion, [JOS] stating:
“I felt disappointment … a sense that all had been in vain, and thought, ‘So this is how it ends, huh’“.
And in the meantime, as I saw images across the media outlets revealing numerous Muslim groups celebrating this turn of events, such as the leaders of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam Nazryate distribute candy and cakes among the people in the markets of Quetta, Pakistan, as the Taliban rolled into Kabul, I wondered how many days would pass before cooperation between the Taliban, several thousand recently released Al Qaeda terrorists and the terrorists of Pakistan’s Jaamat e-Islami and other Islamic terrorist groups results in renewed and exponentially increased terrorist attacks against the Western world and across the globe, especially here on U.S. soil and against U.S. interests abroad.

For many Americans there was never any doubt that we must leave Afghanistan at some point, but they did want the departure to be orderly and honorable, and something far different from what we are receiving under the Biden regime and from the man, Joe Biden, who has been wrong on every major policy issue of the day over his forty some odd years career in politics, from the Persian Gulf War to the surge in Iraq and on to opposing the raid that killed Bin Laden.
This morning America witnessed one military helicopter after another leaving the Embassy compound, which makes it impossible not to draw comparisons with the iconic scene of people fleeing the North Vietnamese Army from the top of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, Vietnam in 1975. Although it was only a month ago that Biden denied this sort of scenario and a Taliban takeover was possible, anyone paying attention knew he was wrong, and now we see Biden’s administration rush thousands of U.S. Marines and U.S. Soldiers to Afghanistan to try to stave off the inevitable, as translators and other Afghan allies and civilians wait for flights that may never arrive for them.
The last days of Kabul are going to be every bit as ugly and chaotic as the last days of Saigon, because too many of the thousands of newly freed Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters and terrorists are on the prowl, vicious as ever, and seeking revenge. And as the hour grows late for Afghanistan, all doubt has been removed that this recent Afghan fiasco is Biden’s Taliban Baby and Kabul is most definitely his administration’s fall of Saigon.
As I write this, I’m thinking of a conversation I had with a dear friend this very morning, who asked that we pray for the safety of all these fine young American men and women, as she told me her nephew had just flown a mission to Afghanistan in a USAF-KC-10 a few days ago. He was just sent back to Afghanistan, flying out with jets on Saturday morning, in what was described as a “sudden” and “immediate” event.
This is where the hearts and minds of the good and decent Americans lie today, with America’s warriors who served Her in unquestioning fashion and all too often gave their lives in the process, to ensure another attack like September 11th 2001 would never be possible again from a force similar to Al Qaeda that was given sanctuary by their Taliban allies and hosts in Afghanistan. And in praying for all our dead and their families and all the soldiers still serving in Afghanistan, we also pray for the Afghan people who opposed the monsters of their own country, those Afghans siding with America and the millions of Afghan women and men who sought a future for their families without oppression.

Do you recall the persecution of Pakistani-Christian Asia Bibi? In case you have forgotten or never heard of her ordeal, she was a Pakistani-Christian laborer who dared to quench her thirst from an apparently Muslim-only well. The offended Muslims engaged in epithets against Asia’s faith which landed her in a no-win situation for Pakistan is an Islamic Republic. This means extolling any faith other than Islam is blasphemy. AND in Pakistan the penal code requires the death penalty.
The thing about life in Pakistan and the blasphemy penal code is that unscrupulous Muslims often use the blasphemy accusation to settle personal disputes with Christians (and other non-Muslim faiths) or to acquire the rare piece of property a poverty stricken Pakistani-Christian might own.
I was so enraged of the religious persecution Asia Bibi received, that included roughly a decade on Pakistan’s death row, that I dedicated much blog time to her plight and other persecuted Christian in Pakistan.
ERGO, I probably do not place much stock in the International Religious Freedom Summit as a paragon of Christian virtue or Religious Liberty for that matter. BUT Asia Bibi is a woman who stood for Christ even if it meant her death. AND FOR THAT, Asia Bibi is a Christian hero of faith.
Because Asia Bibi is a Christian hero you should think of picking up her most recent book relating her death row, freedom and asylum. The book was first published in French (A French co-writer) under a title that translated into English as “Finally Free” that was released in early 2020. English speakers as I am, can pick the English translation that came out in late 2020 under the title, “Free at Last”.
Instead of cross posting the BCM article where I discovered this Asia Bibi update, I am using the CBN original which can be read below.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi, who spent nearly a decade on death row after being falsely accused of blasphemy against Islam, wants to be a voice of hope for other persecuted Christians.
As CBN News has reported, Bibi was convicted and sentenced in 2010 after a coworker accused her of insulting Islam after a dispute. Blasphemy is a crime punishable by death in Pakistan.
The 50-year-old addressed the International Religious Freedom Summit last Wednesday via video message, thanking God for her freedom and acknowledging those who prayed for her while she was imprisoned.
“From the bottom of my heart I am very thankful to the Lord, who has rescued me from my sufferings and difficulties,” she said. “He has given me a fresh start and the opportunity to start a new life with my family.”
Bibi added that she “wants to be a voice for Christian people, Christians in prison, and in difficulties.”
She recalled how her faith overshadowed her fear.
“When I was in prison, I was very worried about my children and husband. I was not aware where they were and whether they were safe or not. At the same time, I had a hope in the Lord,” Bibi explained. “Thanks to all of the brothers and sisters who prayed and fasted. Because of their prayers, I am now free.”
Bibi has previously shared a remarkable story about an encounter with a bird that would routinely visit her when she was in her darkest moments in prison. She believed the bird was a message from God as a means to strengthen her faith.
“There is a beautiful thing that happens every day in my cell,” she explained. “Two days after they announced my death penalty, I was brought into (death row). Every morning around 3:30 or 4, a brown bird with a long beak appears and sits on the boundary wall. This bird also comes every evening around 5. He sits there for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening. Later on, he became my friend. I talk to him and he also talks to me.”
She continued, “As I watched this bird every day, I tried to understand the meaning of him coming day after day. I think this is a messenger from God giving me His message. When the bird comes, I feel encouraged and peaceful. I feel comforted after his visit. I think this is a very significant sign from God.”
Even though she was awaiting death in her cell, the bird brought her comfort and a glimmer of hope, just like God sent ravens to minister to Elijah when he was hiding from those who wanted to kill him.
The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening and would drink from the brook (1 Kings 17:6).
Ultimately Bibi was acquitted of the crime by the Pakistan Supreme Court but then was kept from leaving the country by officials even after a final bid from hardline Islamists to have her acquittal overturned was rejected.
Radical Muslims in Pakistan were outraged by the acquittal and threatened to murder her. Tens of thousands rallied in the streets and called for her death.
She was finally able to leave Pakistan in May of 2019 and was reunited with her daughters in Canada.
During the summit, Bibi pointed out that her “Christian brothers and sisters worked very hard for my freedom,” and said she is “very thankful to everyone from the bottom of my heart.”
“Let us join hands and stand together so we can be a voice for our Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering, and help them out of their situations,” she said. “Like the Lord did for me.”
In Feb. 2020, Bibi released a book about her years in prison titled, Finally Free.
In her new book, she writes about the daily persecution suffered by Pakistan’s Christian minority and gives an account of the demeaning and appalling conditions in the prison where she was confined.
